, and convincing these middle- class people that government had been identified with the interests of minorities and the poor and was not working for them anymore and luring them over to become the republican base. that title gets a lot of attention, because we have seen such a rationalized -- such a campaign, particularly as mitt romney and paul ryan use welface that is -- use a version of welfare that is blackface. it may not be working for them. tavis: the subtitle is no less provocative. "why we long for a golden age that never was." a majority of americans that believe our best days are behind us. there are many who believe that maybe the 21st century belongs to china or somebody else. it ain't ours. what do you say to that? >> the tragic thing about this is that there is a loss of confidence in the future. there was a golden age for a lot of white people. not all. but when i tell the story with my family, i show how my grandparents climbed out of desperate poverty in the depression into the middle class really in one generation, and some of their children proceeded into what may be called

're in a world of trouble for the american family. this is crisis or catastrophe. you know, government oftentimes doesn't work to resolve problems until they become crisis. waiting for a company in private sector to hit chapter 11 before refining the sales process. this has implication for every american family. we are talking about 90% of families in america paying higher taxes. talking about reduction in income of $3,500 per american family. talking about income loss of more than 6% after taxes. the largest single income loss since 194s. huge implications for all american families. politicians have to for once step up to the plate and act in a bipartisan manner to try to fix this. the scary thing, neil, president obama over the last four years has shown absolutely zero ability to compromise on any financial or fiscal issue affecting the american people. >> neil: i don't know about you but i'm not about to give a medal to republicans for having handled this. they, too, have been thinking a deal will miraculous work in their favor. under the assumption that if romney is elected president, they ta
to be the federal government is the message to california. they need to pull back from their own regulations. i do think that we have this opportunity that it all fits under a growth leg. i think we would say -- and governor kasich is looking at this and governor davis is working on it, so you take the energy issue and say now i can fix some of the infrastructure needs that have been piling up. if we start doing that, we will be short on labor in this country. we will need to retrain the people who are not trained or skilled. the potential is enormous if there's any vision and any leadership. >> we will take questions in a moment. first i want to ask about the front page of the new york times, campaign finance and the super pacs going into the congressional races, a small super pacs. all of you, presumably, involved in congressional races. >> no, we are switzerland. >> what is the role for business in government and in election campaigns? >> there is a major effort that's been going on for some time in various ways to force business to back away from participating in both the election process and
, the rebels have been using to get a sense of what is going on. you can see what the government response has ben, massive firepower to crush the rebellion. the rebels and residents have no answer to a barrage of artillery that does not discriminate between the fighter and civilian. the fighters tried to move on seen towards loyalists forces. despite its overwhelming strength come the government forces have made few inroads. we were shown one of their check points, just 200 meters away. they may be fighting for the future of syria, but both sides are struggling over small bits of turf. the empty streets are a testament to the thousands to have fled. some say they have nowhere to go, nowhere is safe. he has lost his wife and six children, all of them were killed when a rocket landed on his house. >> to live is to die. bashar al-assad is a daunting task. you will die wherever you go. they say foreign aid is being provided, but we see nothing. just let us die and get it over with. >> aleppo has become the defining battle in this civil war. neither side can afford to lose, but in truth, neither i
responsibility. we need to take a very different way of looking at how the federal government spends money. i support a moratorium on your marks because it had gotten out of control before it to congress. but that's the beginning slice of a much bigger question about how we bring down the size of the federal government. i have called for a 1% reduction in overall discretionary spending. i have called for a balanced approach on deficit reduction requiring the wealthy to pay more and more cutting in the federal government. >> you have 90 seconds. >> again, shame on you. you thought this campaign is going to be a coronation because you're a democrat and now you are in a serious race with a serious woman and you are desperate. therefore you raise these issues. my plan sites every word that i used from the brightest in the best to but my plan together. you would be better served to be putting a plan together. you need to be honest with the people of connecticut. you need to be honest about your special interest loans. to be honest about your attendance in washington. shame on you for taking this d
about big bird and cutting the government's apron springs doesn't cut it what does? >>guest: this is fought a serious debate when president obama said we cannot cut one small program. to we cannot cut this program what can we cut? we have $1.1 trillion deficit and that was an improvement. >>neil: the argument is, it is chump change. but you add them up, it adds up. >>guest: i do watch pbs a lot, sometimes i listen to npr but people would listen to it and watch it and like the programming, they should pay if it. talk about children's programming. it used to be "sesame" was the only game in town, the most successful program in the history of tv. now this are hundreds of programs like "sesame street" on pay for profit television. my feeling is, if people like warren buffett and people like ted turner feel this is such an important programming, why shouldn't they pay for it? >>neil: the issue here, you know, is what we spending and where we cut back on spending. the argument the liberals give you, maybe we just charge more for what we are spending money on. that gets back to mor

[cheers and applause] >> reporter: gentlemen, welcome to you both. >> gentlemen, welcome to you both. let's start the economy, seth one and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you you go about creating new jobs?w you have two minutes. each have two minutes to start. a coin toss has determined, mr. president, you go first. >> thank you very much, jim, yu for this opportunity. i want to thank governor romnek and university of denver for your are hospitality. there are lot of points i wantr to make tonight but the most important one is that 20 years ago i became the luckiest ma
out the accusation, that's like asking the government, how often do you beat your wife? >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it, ali, let's face it, okay? the facts are, ali, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. not one of them had a number below 8.1. they were republicans and they were democrats. and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack, and if your question was -- >> i wake up this morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of asmptions. >> as the best ceo that america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics, and the department of labor measures employment, number one. and b, maybe mitt romney should be replacing president obama if he's not doing a good job. but to say there is corruption of somebody cooking these books, why do you do this? for a government in trust of private institutions, that's n
is right. i don't want to barrow money from the chinese government so i can fund pbs. i guarantee you if they cutoff funding tomorrow big bird will find plenty of buyers and backers. they don't need that money. that's of the issue that is skirting away with this funny ad. >> no one knew that sesame street license did great. now everyone knows that. you used to think it was totally dependent on the government. >> as the father of four daughters, whaz your name? >> i don't have a take because i don't remember their names. david was one, i think, but i am a little high right now. 2 wasn't barak who brought it out in the debate. gentlemen, you are right -- yes, 3% comes from the government. it does not matter. w45 it does to our budget is infan tess mall. every conservative looks at it and says, yes, destroy pbs. mitney -- >> is that a new name? >> yes. >> i wish her name was kit and he was a talking car. i would vote for him. >> he reminds me in warmth of kit. >> bill, i do kind of agree with you bringing up sesame street and big bird in the debate was bad, but it is the obama campaign -

. it is time to stop rewarding our friends and punishing our enemies and having the government treat every american the same, which is a foundational principal of the rule of law. and i think mitt romney has to do more of that. has he been specific with his plan? he laid five out in the debate, which is more than the president did. that's why independents thought mitt romney did very, very well. >> let me ask you about one of the issues where they differ, medicare. that is a big deal in florida romney says he supports vouchers for medicare, a plan that is not very popular. how does play in florida with all those seniors? >> right now in florida, you've got about 12 million registered voters. 36% who are republicans, you have 40% who are democrats. and then the 24% or the remainder is going to be the most important percentage in america and i think it's 24% who are not registered republican or democrat. these are going to be the most important voters in the united states. but, let's look at medicare. you have mitt romney who says, i want to give you vouchers, which i personally don't agree
? is there a point where the federal government seizes control of the project? dr. ruiz? >> thank you for bringing this up, because it really brings very pleasant memories of my father taking me there to fish and havin picnics with the family. now we're seeing dead fish and a stink that is unbearable. and this is somewhere where congresswoman has failed to deliver. she continues to talk a big game. she promised in her first election that she would fix the sea. 14 years later it has not been fixed. i don't know what stippings more, a broken promise or the sultan sea. in fact, this is a great opportunity right now for us to revive that sultan sea so that we can have it as a hot spot for tourism, so that other children can fish with their fairs, so we can develop geothermal energy and boost our economy. and the way we're going to go about doing it is public/private partnerships with local input and authority so that we can come together and stop this bickering and attack talk and all this other stuff that congresswoman bono mack is so adept at and skilled, but really come up with some problem-solving
under bain or when you were government of massachusetts. jobs, what are you talking about jobs for? you don't know anything about jobs, 47 out of 50 and we're in a fight with this guy? he's leading now? you're kidding me! part of the reason is progressives are more honest than conservatives. when conservatives lose a debate oh, no, we won we won. i don't care, we won. what do liberals do, they said you're right we lost. >> president obama was not prepared for his huge debate. this isn't about left, right good or bad, it's about coming to work to work. >> i think he was taken aback at the brazenness. >> i believe that mr. obama took a licking last night. the public knows that. he seemed not disinterested, but uninterested. he looked as if he really would rather be somewhere else. >> when you've got to lead, try to sit on the ball in basketball and you've got the lead, when you play conservative, you often lose the lead. >> the president bizarrely just failed to show up. >> i'm showing you one of the strongest headline, a full banner based on giving it completely to romney last night. >>
there are big differences about women's rights, big difference about the role of government in saving american -- that's my point. come back on me if i'm wrong. i don't think arguing about medicare dos and don'ts and what's in and what's out -- he'll always win that. you know why? he's willing to say anything, candidate, i was vice president of department of defense policy board. last year around this time i was down there in the combat zone let's watch. >> he is a pragmatic business person. he's a guy who likes to take apart a problem and figure out how to get it fixed. >> barack obama is a fascinating mixture of boldness and caution but then once he makes a decision, it's usually the bold one. >> mitt romney has been accused of flip-flopping, but on mormonism he will never flip-flop. >> and yet in politics he has often tried to keep that part of him behind the curtain. >> the backlash against his presidency must be mystifying to him because he genuinely doesn't see himself as a radical. >> well, with us right now is michael kirk producer of "frontline: the choice 2012." congratulations it wi
convention performance odd ball, unquote. she also wrote a very pro-pbs piece, but failed to cite government subsidies to that network. the former chairman of the board of the associated press, william dean singleton, last april introduced president obama at the annual a.p. lunch onby saying, quote, the president inherited the head winds of the worst economic recession since the great depression. he pushed through congress the biggest economic recovery plan in history, and on and on and on. a glowing introduction. now the a.p. is one of the largest news wire services in the world. and it's biased against mitt romney. i think that's true, beyond a reasonable doubt. local newspapers all over the usa carry a.p. photos and articles every day. that's a huge advantage for president obama. and perhaps the best example of what the national media has become in america. the obama campaign believes governor romney made a big mistake by saying he would stop federal money to pbs and npr. this morning, this ad was released. >> bernie madoff, dennis kozlowski, criminals, gluttons of greed. and the evil gen
to the cyber threat requires the right policies and organizations across the federal government. for the past year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security a
in the attack. they had repeatedly asked for tighter security. initially, the american government the attack to protest against an anti-muslim film. now they say it was a terrorist attack. >> the committee will come to order. >> republicans are outraged at the change. >> in fact, it was 9/11, the 11th anniversary of the greatest terrorist attack in u.s. history, in new york, pennsylvania, and at the pentagon. it was that the anniversary which caused an organization allied with al qaeda to attack and kill our personnel. >> this is not just about why the attack took place. people at the state it -- the charges that people ignored the request for further security. only months before the election, that is a very serious charge. imitt romney has put the attack at the heart of his argument that president obama does not stand for america. -- stand up for america. >> as the administration has finally conceded, these attacks were the deliver it work of terrorists. >> the committee -- for the deliberate -- these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> we have hundreds of terrorist-type acti
. >> do you think this attack on malala might help the pakastani government have the political will to take on the taliban? >> i just heard that the ministry and the minister of the interior are hoping this will give them the will to move the bank that has not happened and needs to happen if pakistan is to have an effective counterterrorism policy. >> are you worried that the american condemnation of the attack on malala could prove counterproductive when you are trying to help? >> we are not the only ones condemning. even those who are anti-american are condemning the attack. it may reverberate most negatively against one candidate for president, but he has held back from condemning the taliban himself for a reason that i think is very interesting. he says he is afraid they would retaliate against his workers in the region. that shows you the deaths of the year and intimidation that just a handful -- the death of the fear and intimidation that just a handful of terrorists have. they hate the teheran and fever and the attacking of innocent -- they hate the terror and fear and t
of this week, the tax cliff that comes off the spending, the taxes and the more government bureaucracy is exactly what the democrats are selling. this has caused a hiewmg impact on employment, we have a lack of jobs and the future that lies ahead is very bleak, economically. republicans offer a sound plan, not just to cut taxes but to get us back to work and our candidates differ with every single democrat on this issue, i think we will do just fine. >> shannon: we mentioned the key states where you are watching, ohio, california, massachusetts, can you give us insight maybe into the seats that are leaning one way or the other and you are dwoaing a lot of resources to make sure it falls into your column? >> did you mention, a race in massachusetts. one of the top republican challengers that we have against john teenager neboston. richard is doing a fabulous job. he has ethically challenged the american people, not only want and need honest members of congress, but i think we will win that seat. as you look across the country, republicans are on offense, all across the country, against
declaring war irdlede pscriptiondrugexpaded they are concerned with the lack of accountability in government. in the case of occupy, it's wall street, and guess what -- they are both right. >> he summed it up beautifully. >> when you were running, it was a matter of people getting to call into an 800-number. now we're into this world of social media, where you can tweet something out in a matter of seconds. do you think that would make a third-party iran or any kind of a people's movement easier today than it was 20 years ago when you had to rely on people calling in to a phone number? do you think the computer revolution, which you have been involved since the start, and in particular at the social media revolution of the last several years, should create a situation where you are on twitter, where you can mobilize people more easily? >> sure. >> shouldn't that make the type of solution you are talking about, people demanding change, similar to have? >> that is what we need, and i think that is a good way to do it. >> the problem would be they have the tools today to instantly to mobilize.
, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things have not ignited our economy the way it should be ignited. we've seen the slowest recovery from a recession. bill: john roberts traveling with the campaign. live in vanmeter, iowa, that is west of des moines. what is happening there, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though the unemployment number is down below the psych lodge call level at 8% on the stump in newport news, governor romney found a new way to use it. >> if you look back 60 years, at all the months we had unemployment before 8% before president obama. there were 39 months. in all 60 years with unemployment above 8%. u
about how to govern ourselves in order to deal with this. we know how to do this. that's what's so god-awful ironic about this. we know how to deal with it and we're not dealing with it. so if we kind of wake up, we get out of our mental torpor and we can break the shackles of the special interest groups that are preventing positive progress on this we can handle this, we know how to do it. >> are you going back up any time soon? >> no, no. >> you've had enough of the high country? >> no, never, never, absolutely not. i mean, it's just, it's so incredibly beautiful. when i'm getting ready for a lot of these trips, as i'm packing my cameras i go, "good grief. how can i possibility shoot anything new on this trip? you now, it's going to be a repeat of the same old thing." and every single time i go out and reality delivers something new where you go, "wow, i've never seen that before, and isn't that cool?" click, get another shot. >> the book is "ice: portraits of vanishing glaciers" and the film's title is? >> "chasing ice." >> which you've done for a long time. >> been chasing ice, abs
has a view, similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. >> i suppose mr. romney thought the president wouldn't recognize the term trickle-down if he twisted it around. romney is proposing boilerplate trickle-down economics providing tax relief for businesses with the false hope that they won pocket that money but rather put it into new jobs. help the rich get richer and then they'll help everyone else. but hey, mr. romney's plan as stated in the debate may in fact sound right to you. but don't call it new. it's a been there, done that track record. lower taxes on the rich, simply don't lead to job growth. when you compare the top marg

they don't want it to be manipulated. they're put together by two separate government entities, bureau of labor statistics, the labor department, and then the census bureau. and then the employment numbers, put together by the labor department. that tells us the number of jobs created by businesses. then there was a household survey, where field representatives go in and call a number of households, putting that number together. you combine the two and that is the report we got this morning but with 2,000 field representatives involved, and two government entities involved, it is almost impossible to manipulate these numbers. >> that is why we needed it all explained, as always, sue herrera. >>> now to breaking news out of arizona, where last night we reported the possibility that they were looking at the possibility that the u.s. border agent killed there may have been the victim of friendly fire. tonight there is more, more at the border patrol station in bisbee station there. good evening. mark, good evening >> reporter: and good evening, sources tell nbc news they expected an annou
